Autograph Convention Report: Virginia Madsen Nice, Penny Marshall Not Nice

At Chiller Theatre, the answer to "What's in a name?" is $45

More celebs, more schmoozing. And then I heard a woman screech out of the blue, "I've watched you on TV my whole life! You should have your own table!" I swiveled my head to see who she had addressed that to, and it was me! How flattering! Yeah, but I'm working now.

Only person I wanted to meet/talk to was Cheetah Chrome. You MAY remember him as the guitarist for The Dead Boys. It's too bad that I met him. He was an arrogent, removed jerk. While paying $30 for his autograph on his new book, I tried to talk to him. He sat there (on Friday NIGHT) in mirror sunglasses and gave me a one word answer, "Yeah". Then I asked to take a picture and his handler (good choice of word Michael) told me that would be an additional $10.00, which I didn't spend. Cheetah, the next time you do one of these, remeber that the few people who actually ask for and want your autograph are as old as you and still remember and care who you are.

Oughta be a rule, if you're reduced to signing autographs for money, enough with the attitude.

 @exackerly I saw Cindy Williams signing at an autograph show in Philly three years ago, along with (tragically) Sherman Hemsley... and (even more tragically) Erin Moran.
